Arranging the Flowers!

Good Morning Everyone, Monday again, doesn't it come around quickly, but at least I still have a day off.  I was off most of last week with the flu, but feel I can go back tomorrow.  Thankfully it has not floored me as some people have been awfully ill with it and taking ages to clear up.

Thank you all for your great comments on my last card, it's always good to hear what you all think, sometimes I make something and I'm not really sure about it all, but the fact that I've put so much work and time into it, I wouldn't have the heart to do it again.  So I is greatly appreciated and encouraging to read your comments.

I'm earlier today, need to ge into town, and don't want to put off too much time there, I'd only spend money, and I have also got to go round a couple of shops I was in yesterday as I lost my gloves and they have sentimental value as they were my mums, not to mention they are leather with cashmire lining and I love them. I am really hoping someone will have handed them in.

My card today is for a crafting friend who is not too well just now, hasnt been for a wee while noe and is waiting to go for tests at the hospital, so I hope this one brightens her day;
This is one of the stamps I won in the Lili's Little Fairies Blog Challenge a couple of weeks ago and I just love it and I thought it just right for Margaret.
Coloured with  Promarkers and matted on to yellow co-ordination card.  Papers are from a new range called Riverbank Revels, as are the buttons and flowers. LOTV sentiment, Memory Box corner bow die and red seam binding from The Ribbon Girl, finished off with some Star Dust.

I would like to enter this card into http://liliofthevalleythursdaychallenge.blogspot.co.uk/  "Anything but Square"
I hope Margaret likes it I tried to make it bright and cheery.

I will love you and leave you now, and hope that whatever your doing today goes well,

Kate  X

Pretty card. Those new LOTV images are growing on me. I wasnt sure at first, but they are definitely growing on me.
Hope you'll find your gloves. Nothing worse than losing something you treasure.
